“While writing is a solitary business, few writers are solitaries. Most write as members of society and witnesses of the times in which they live. They respond to the heads around them and put their heads together with theirs. If their works seem bizarre to the general reader, it is because they are writing from within a social circle of bizarre heads. (Example: participants in literary movements with or without manifestos.) These are not solitaries, who write from inside their own heads and whose writing cannot be understood solely within the compass of a specific place or by the clock of a specific time.

Solitary writers come out of nowhere and do not belong anywhere. They are not domesticated or socialized, not as writers. Their subject is not the world about them but the one within them. From story to story or poem to poem, they repeat themselves because all they have to work with are themselves and their dreams, which are strange dreams and often bad dreams. As anyone knows, nothing is more troublesome to communicate than yourself and your dreams, the feelings and visions that have molded you into what you are. So solitaries such as Lovecraft and Poe had their work cut out for them . . . and only them.”

Did the writer of “True Detective” plagiarize Thomas Ligotti and others?

Did the writer of “True Detective” plagiarize Thomas Ligotti and others?
by Mike Davis

Like many fans of weird fiction, I was overjoyed to discover HBO's True Detective. But as the season progressed, I became increasingly uneasy. It seemed to me that True Detective writer Nic Pizzolatto was "borrowing" words and phrasing from other authors, especially Thomas Ligotti. Recently, I expressed my concerns on one of the Lovecraft eZine video shows […]

New TLO Exclusive Interview -- "Vital Realities: A Conversation with Thomas Ligotti"
Jul 23, 2014 - 4:53 PM - by Dr. Locrian
Hey there, folks. Well, thanks to the patience and labor of Tom Ligotti himself, we have a new interview to consume--and it's over 5,000 words of riveting material which covers Tom's literary revitalization via physical and emotional trauma, a look at "Metaphysica Morum" from the inside out, and Ligotti's opinion on what makes for a good (and bad) interview.

Click here to read it.

Thanks again for your time and effort, Tom!

S.T. Joshi's new Cthulhu anthology will have a story from Tom
Jun 15, 2014 - 10:44 AM - by david
Tom will have a story in the new Cthulhu anthology, A Mountain Walked. Not sure which story. Also, there are 25 signatures including Tom's, T.E.D. Klein, etc. It comes out in July from Centipede Press.

It contains a whopping 29 stories (10 of them original), along with spectacular art portfolios by Erlend Mørk, Allen Koszowski, and Stanley C. Sargent, along with much other work.

Some of the authors include Joseph S. Pulver, Sr., Donald Tyson, Cody Goodfellow, Caitlin Kiernan, Laird Barron, Michael Shea, Patrick McGrath, Mark Samuels, and Gemma Files. Also the book contains new artwork by David Ho, John Kenn Mortensen, and Thomas Ott.

The book is oversized at 11 x 7 inches and contains 692 pages. Joshi hints on his blog that the price may be around $125 but is not totally sure. Centipede also says they’ll have the book on sale for the first couple weeks and they expect to have 500 copies sometime in mid to late July.

Each copy is signed by Thomas Ligotti, T.E.D. Klein, Laird Barron, Caitlin Kiernan, and many others. The signature pages are signed by 25 people; Centipede went halfway around the world for signatures
